'Unveil' Lets You See Your Notifications Even When Siri is Open
While Siri is sometimes a useful little voice companion on iOS devices, we cam sometimes get carried away in our conversations with her. When this happens, our notifications are suppressed until we close Siri, because iOS wonít show notifications in the Siri interface.
A new free jailbreak tweak called Unveil
by iOS developer Sirifl0w
fixes this. The tweak will force iOS to show notifications even when the Siri interface is open on your screen. Notification animations will occur as expected, and the animations won't interrupt your Siri experience.
One thing that we noticed is that although the notification banner appeared during the Siri conversation, the text tone did not sound. This is a nice little feature because if Siri is in the middle of speaking to you, or if youíre in the middle of speaking to Siri, you donít want to be disturbed by noises.
Unveil is only for iOS 6 and requires a Siri-capable iOS device. The tweak doesnít come with any options to configure.
